Meet Kris Abbe, Talent Development Manager

February 22, 2024
Kris Abbe, Talent Development Manager in the Pace University Human Resources department.

Pace start date: June 26, 2023

When do you feel like you are part of a community here at Pace? (Is there a program or activity that contributes to your sense of community?)

I feel most part of the community when I am collaborating with our various departments in developing, planning, and delivering training opportunities for our departments and offices. When we come together and experience growth through learning, we become closer as a team and proud to further our institution’s mission and meet our strategic goals. It’s important to me to give back to an amazing community that gives so much support to our Pace students.

How do you contribute towards the success of Pace?

As a Talent Development Manager in Human Resources, my main focus is to support our employees onboard and grow within their careers at Pace so that they can continue providing the Pace students with expert service and care. By providing initiatives focused on personal and professional development, coaching, networking, and mentoring, we can collectively “level up” as one big team. We are launching many of these new and reinvigorated initiatives at our in-person Employee Development Days this March, and I hope to see everyone there!

What do you love to do on the weekend to relax?

On the weekends, I like to get silly with my 7-year-old twins and pet bunny, Houdini, listen to old records found at thrift shops, and go on adventures with my partner from motorcycle rides when it’s warmer to trying new food and new restaurants.
